  • It would take many pages to tell this historic company of puppets, the renewed passion that shines through every work, the meticulous attention to detail, for each detail, from the stage clothes of the small wooden protagonists up to the to the last floor in the extraordinary sets. Suffice to say that each show elicits wonder, emotion, a sense of gratitude. Very rarely do we perceive, in the artistic work, such a sense of family history and its collaborators, sewn together with the love for the craft and the enthusiasm of representation. The red armchairs of the small theater, in this peripheral and popular area, have the ability to welcome young and adult spectators accompanying them to a magical, ancient yet so close, contemporary and lively elsewhere. button.
